Hey lovelies!.

Before I start, I want you to know I had this facial done on the 31st of December, 2020.

My skin was good to me for most of the year 2020, even on days where I couldn’t be bothered to do any skincare routine but this changed towards the end of the year.

I had one of these oh-so-frequent breakouts I get every now and then. The sad part about this one is that it happened 4 days before the new year. So, I decided to tackle this the fanciest and most comfortable way possible- letting someone else treat it for me.

That’s how I found myself at BISMID cosmetics store for a facial.


  • Normal facial 3,000, towel -200 & extractor for acne – 500
  • Whitening facial 5,000
  • Facial for acne treatment 5,000

My Experience

After having a conversation with one of the “facialists” I opted for a combination of whitening facial and the acne facial for my breakout. With a discount it totalled 7,000 naira instead of 10,000 naira.

Being the first time I’m getting a facial, the first time I’m ever leaving my skin to the hands of a stranger coupled with the fact that I was paying 7,000 naira to be rubbed on the face, I cried inside. On the bright side, I needed a professional treatment for my breakouts and that I feel like I got.

The whole facial lasted for around 2 hours and the steps included

  • Washing
  • Scrubbing
  • Acne treatment with Neutrogena oil free acne wash
  • Washing again
  • Honey mask and steaming
  • Whitener (for the whitening)
  • Moisturizer

Rating: 8/10

I will go back for the 3,000 facial if I feel the need to be pampered but I don’t know when that will be since I have an idea of the routine. I’m undecided about this though.

All in all, I loved the experience. This may be cliche but I noticed instant relief to my breakouts. They were not completely gone but they did not sting or burn as usual. 2 days after, my breakouts were completely gone. 

Their customer care was good, services were good except they had some light issues during my facial. 

I ended up buying the acne face wash which I will put a review about soon enough.

Have you had a facial at Bismid cosmetics before? Do let me know in the comments below and share your experience.

Hi, i haven’t done a facial at bismid but i have definitely done a body-scrub there.
It was okay-ish….
Would hve preferred a hamman bath instead but it way too pricey.
But talking about bismid again, i might just try their facial one of this days…. hopefully.
Thanks for sharing

    Hi Chinenye..

    You should try out their facials. I quite enjoyed the experience.
    Hamman bath and body scrub though? I will see what I can find out about that, may be the next thing I will try.
    Thanks for sharing!
